Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

#Iran, really? Our ambassador certainly wants to express our deep sympathy. Horrible attack, deeply sad. But blame the Netherlands? Strong rebuttal is necessary.

Iran summons UK, Dutch and Danish envoys over attack on military parade | The Guardian |  

Iran has summoned envoys from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Denmark over Saturday's deadly shooting of 29 people at a military parade in the south of the country, state media has reported.

The British charge d'affaires, along with the Dutch and Danish ambassadors, were "informed of Iran's strong protests over their respective countries' hosting of some members of the terrorist group" which carried out the attack, the official news agency Irna said.

Iran called on Denmark and the Netherlands to extradite the attack's "perpetrators and their accomplices" to stand trial, Irna said, citing foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi.

"It is not acceptable that the European Union does not blacklist members of these terrorist groups as long as they do not perpetrate a crime on ... European soil," Qasemi was quoted as saying.

The British charge d'affaires, summoned in the ambassador's absence, was told it was unacceptable "that the spokesman for the Al-Ahvazi terrorist group was allowed to claim responsibility of the attack through a London-based TV network", according to the news agency. Tehran claims the group is backed by its arch-rival Saudi Arabia.
